The Malbec grapes for this wine were harvested during the first half of April from a vineyard located in Vista Flores in the Uco Valley. This particular vineyard sits at over 3,500 feet above sea level and is a combination of rocky, sand, and clay soils.
A long 14 months of French oak barrel ageing has contributed to a lovely rich, bold, and full bodied wine that is a delight to drink now and will also keep for a good few years yet.
